The former 'Grey's Anatomy' actress - who married Ryan Debolt in 2012 - revealed her sexuality in a powerful speech at the 40 to None Summit in Los Angeles on Saturday (08.10.16).

She said: "So many of our youth experiencing homelessness are youth whose lives touch on many intersections - whether they be gender identity, gender expression, race, class, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship status. And, because of the intersections that exist in my own life: Woman, multi-racial woman, woman of colour, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican & Irish sides, I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth's voices to be heard, and that support our youth in owning their own complex narratives so that we can show up for them in the ways they need us to."

Sara - whose 'Grey's Anatomy' character Callie Torres was also bisexual - took to Twitter after her speech to praise the True Colors Fund, which works to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.

She tweeted: "#ThankYou @TrueColorsFund 4 the work you do 2 end #LGBTQ #YouthHomelessness & your support #Woman #Latinx #Bisexual #Intersectionality (sic)."
